Devo Singer & Co-Founder, Bob Casale Passes On

One of the founding members of the new wave group Devo, 61 years old Bob Casale has died of heart failure. This is according to a post on the band’s official Twitter account.

Singer and co-founder of Devo, Mark Mothersbaugh said:

“We are shocked and saddened by Bob Casale’s passing. He not only was integral in DEVO’s sound, he worked over twenty years at Mutato, collaborating with me on sixty or seventy films and television shows, not to mention countless commercials and many video games.  Bob was instrumental in creating the sound of projects as varied as “Rugrats” and Wes Anderson’s films. He was a great friend. I will miss him greatly.”

Devo was formed in 1972, and the band is best known for the hit song, “Whip It.”
